These deliciously simple recipes make every meal special. Louise Pickford shows you easy ways of preparing sauces, both savoury and sweet, that will give your cooking a new lease of life. Here are over 70 recipes for sauces to complement a wide variety of foods, including meat and poultry, fish, pasta, vegetables and desserts. Easy-to-follow instructions explain the techniques for creating classic sauces such as Hollandaise, while recipes for meat and poultry include tangy modern sauces like Fresh Cranberry and Sour Cherry. For fish dishes you can find out how to give old favourites like parsley sauce a fresh new appeal. This book also includes plenty of suggestions for pasta sauces and wickedly luxurious sweet sauces to add the finishing touches to desserts.
